Specializing in Repairing Drainpipes

Zoom Drain of Seattle specializes in drains. Because of our narrow focus, we are experts in the common issues and problems homeowners encounter with their drains and sewer lines. Our technicians complete more drain cleaning services each year than most Seattle plumbers do in their lifetime, so we’ve seen it all.

Clogs are the most common reason a homeowner requests drain repair. Over time, cooking grease, hair, oil, dirt, and other debris can stick to the inside of the drainpipe, and this buildup can eventually cause a complete blockage. In severe cases, this blockage may cause the pipe to crack or break.

If you notice a slowdown with your drains, our team can perform a drain inspection with our snake cameras, find the source of the problem, and clear it out using one of the following methods:

  • PowerSnake, which uses a blade attached to a plumbing snake to cut through obstructions
  • ZOOM Jetting®, our proprietary water jetting technology for safe yet powerful results
  • Drain maintenance products, including ZOOM DRAIN Bio™, CitraJet®, and RootX®

Common Causes of Damaged Sewer Lines

Some drain and sewer issues go beyond a clog require more than drain cleaning. Cracks, holes, and leaks in sewer lines can be caused by a number of things—some preventable and some unavoidable.

Sewer damage is often due to:

  • Caustic chemicals, like store-bought drain cleaner
  • Serious clogs or a buildup of foreign matter
  • Dipping or bellied pipes
  • Inferior piping material
  • Tree root invasion
  • Shifting soil
  • Corrosion

Signs You Might Need Drain or Sewer Repair

Give us a call right away if you notice any of these warning signs that your sewer needs repair:

  • Clogs in more than one drain
  • Foul, unexplained odor coming from the drains or your yard
  • Other drains backing up when flushing or running water
  • Standing water in the yard or particularly lush areas of grass
  • An influx in drain flies or other insects around drains and sewers

Minimally Invasive Trenchless Sewer Repair in Seattle

Our team at Zoom Drain of Seattle uses trenchless sewer drain repair technology to minimize the disruption to you and your property whenever possible. Our trenchless methods start with a small entrance and exit hole on either end of the damaged pipe section, which allows us to feed tools down into the damaged pipe to repair or replace it.

We most often recommend one of the following trenchless sewer repair methods:

  • ZOOM PowerPipe™: This method uses a steel cable and auger machine to shatter the existing pipe and push the pieces out of the way before pulling a corrosion-proof polyethylene pipe through to replace it.
  • ZOOM Pipe Relining: For smaller leaks or cracks, relining a section of the pipe often makes the most sense from the standpoint of cost and efficiency. Our technicians apply an epoxy liner to the inside of the pipe using an inflatable sleeve and allow it to cure, effectively patching up any damage.

Traditional Excavation for Sewer Line Repair & Replacement

In some cases, trenchless options are not possible or just not the best choice for your situation. Zoom Drain of Seattle can also perform traditional excavation of your sewer lines. Our drain experts will locate the damaged pipes and repair them as safely, quickly, and efficiently as possible to minimize the disruption that comes with excavation.
